On one side of the social media universe is a little thing called Finsta, aka Fake Instagram. Many young adults make a Finsta account to post the more real and unfiltered side of their lives, from raw selfies to relatable memes, and is often shared only to close friends. Some opt for this second, less curated Instagram account in hopes of escaping the pressure of having to look #aesthetic or put-together all the time.
We get it, we like to maintain our pretty feeds with the good, but we also don't want to forgo our bad days and mundane experiences. Celebrities are especially familiar with the pressure of needing to look perfect all the time, which is why it's not a surprise to hear that a handful of them may potentially have their own secret social media accounts. Other famous personalities also have interests outside of their craft, and like us, they want to post about it online without having people judge them for it.
Celebrities rumored to have secret social media accounts:
People live for Lorde's music, but Lorde lives for onion rings, so much so that she made an Insta account dedicated to reviewing onion rings from across the globe. Lorde's onion ring fan account was initially top secret, until she confirmed that it's actually hers on Jimmy Fallon's talk show. As of writing, @onionringsworldwide has around 108,000 followers.
Kendall and Kylie Jenner
Social media royals Kendall and Kylie Jenner may also want a break from the internet spotlight every now and them, and it seems they, too, have resorted to making Finstas. Entertainment reports once mentioned that their sister, Kourtney Kardashian, unintentionally hinted at the Jenner sisters having Finstas in an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Their Finsta handles were never revealed, however (which is basically the point of Finstas!).
Back in 2016 when Snapchat was still a huge thing, rapper Drake was rumored to have a secret account on the multimedia app. While the rapper never really revealed what his Snapchat @ was at that time, people started speculating that he did use the app thanks to an interview DJ Khaled did, where he mentioned a list of people he followed on Snapchat (spoiler alert: he namedropped Drake).
Aside from @bellathorne, Bella also has another Instagram account using the handle @avree1997. "Avree" may have come from her real name, Annabella Avery, while 1997 is her birth year.
It's no secret that these South Korean superstars used to have the Instagram account @bangtan, which they used to post selfies prior to their debut as a K-pop group. What fans found ~weird~ though was when the inactive Insta account suddenly resurfaced in 2020 after years of inactivity. Some hoped that the group will be reviving the old IG page, while others speculated that it might be related to a possible comeback. The account was later on deactivated, and as of writing, it seems that the handle was picked up by a fan account.
The seven members of BTS share only one personal social media account, which is their Twitter page @bts_twt (Apart from the app Weverse which they use to post personal content and interact with fans, of course).
